Ira Pastor Comments:

On today’s show we are going to continue upon a theme that we started a few weeks ago, and that is in today’s (and the near future’s) world, we are facing this major demographic shift: by 2050, the estimated population of those 65+ will represent 18% of the global population, with an estimated group of 500 million octogenarians and above.

How do we continue to foster innovations to deal with this population aging that is, needless to say, poised to impose a significant strain on economies, health systems, and social structures worldwide?

In this world with amazing pockets of wealth, how do we make sure some of it (outside of traditional life science venture capital, PE model) begins to get appropriately channeled to support the next generation of breakthroughs in “healthy longevity,” so that all of us can benefit from the tremendous opportunities it has to offer?

Dr. Victor Dzau

Our guest today is truly a “though leaders thought leader” on the topic and really needs no introduction for those that spend time in the biomedical space.
